Which Georgia college gives the best return on investment?

Georgia Institute of Technology offers a notable bang for your buck, according to College Scorecard.

The White House recently unveiled the website that, unlike traditional sources such as U.S. News & World Report, doesn’t rank schools. College Scorecard instead provides “the clearest, most accessible, and most reliable national data on college cost, graduation, debt, and post-college earnings.” 

Based on the database, and with median earnings of $74,000 in 10 years after entering the university, Georgia Tech is in the top 10 percent of:

• four-year schools with low costs that lead to high incomes

• four-year schools with high graduation rates and low costs and

• four-year colleges with high graduation leading to high incomes.

Georgia Highlands College was also highlighted as a two-year college where students earn high salaries after graduation.
